The International Monetary Fund and the World Bank will go ahead with their annual meetings in Marrakech next month, despite the September 8 earthquake centred near the city.

The IMF and World Bank’s leaders and Morocco’s finance minister said in a statement on September 18 that they wished to stand by the country. They pledged to conduct the meetings in a way that did not hamper relief efforts and was “respectful to the victims and the Moroccan people”.
